A Natural Life

Our farms are fully integrated with both hatchery and sea cages. This means we oversee the entire life-cycle of our fish, and can ensure it is has the best quality existence.

Our aim is to create an environment for the fish that is as close as possible to being in the wild, with an abundance of space, minimal handling.

our seven steps to sustainably-farmed trout

Pioneers with passion

We were the first farm to trial growing trout in sea and freshwater lochs back in the 70s, which had a massive impact on global aquaculture. That entrepreneurial spirit, underpinned by scientific research, has always been central to the evolution of our farm.

We work with many scientific bodies, in particular the Institute of Aquaculture and the University of the West of Scotland, to research aspects of fish husbandry and reduce environmental impact.

Our Story

Sustainable Farming

Trout farming is all about passion – it is a small-scale, artisan operation run by people who love this fish and love their countryside. We want to nurture and protect our beautiful surroundings more than anyone. All Kames Steelhead Trout are reared in accordance with this philosophy, and we follow the Marine Scotland Code of Best Practice. We are Freedom Food, RSCPA and Global GAP accredited.

Our Sustainability

We have a Highland mentality: we support our people, we give back to our community, we tend carefully to our land and our waters, and we grow our fish to the best of their potential. It’s about respect, ultimately.
